Swedish Galleon Vasa

The warship Vasa was built in 1625 by order of King Gustav II Adolf of Sweden. On 10 Aug. 1628 Vasa lifted the anchors for the first time in good weather. The first stronger gust of wind caused the ship to capsize about 1,300 metres after setting sail. After its rediscovery in 1957 the ship could be salvaged in good condition as a whole. The ship was preserved and restored in an elaborate process and has been on display at the Vasa Museum in Stockholm since 1990. More Infos More Infos
